A fun weekend of riding...

Why are these guys smiling???



Because despite the cold, it was a fun weekend of riding. MW, -kw and I got out both days, and Sunday we even had da-Butchie and Tony with us too. And we saw/rode with the Dark Night out there Sunday too... it was cool.

Conditions were fast, slip-slidin' fun. Almost all of us went down at least once. I think Tony was hurtin the worst of any of us after a hard fall in a right-hander. My left knee was feelin' it this morning, but is ok now.

I missed the Pugsley time trial over on Comoy Circle though... bummer. Didn't see JP's email until it was too late. I'll be there for the next one...

I'm off to Wisconsin for work. Back Wednesday. Have fun in my absence!

Cheers,
MG

PS - thanks -kw for the images...

Now thems are some beardsicles a Minnesoatan could be proud of! Nice

Chaybo said...

damn proud for sure. But for some reason i feel sorta lazy now.

a. i can't grow a beard for shit]

b. i haven't been on my mtb for about 2 weeks (well, is a pugs considered a mtb ? )

c. i'm holding a 12oz beverage that inspires another 12oz beverage and so on.


anyway...enough whining. how was cheeseland ?

MG said...

hahahaha... thanks sieler. how's things going in colorado?

both of you guys need to get the weekend of march 24-25 on your calendar for a trip to moab and fruita. mw, hopefully jp and i at least will be coming out, and redstone and several other front rangers are gonna' be coming too. hopefully we'll also be able to hook up with mike curiak while we're out there as well -- i emailed with him this morning about it.

wisconsin was good, but as always it's good to be home.

hope to see you both soon,
mg

i'm out for the spring trip. too much pain involved in getting the family stuff figured out so i can bail.

summer trip to the mountains tho. i'll make that one work for sure.

MG said...

ouch...

MG said...

... that's a bummer.

MG said...

... but we're ridin' this weekend, right?

redstone said...

mw, definitely expect to see you this summer. I full on plan to close the shop for a weekend so we can cruise to some high altitude postcard stuff like CB or Steamboat.

mg - chad pointed out to me that the weekend we'll be in Moab will also be the weekend of that super long 100mile Moab deathride...

mw said...

yeah. i'd rather go. the TI will be my break from reality this spring.

maybe next year when liem is older it will be easier to leave, as of now she's a handful.

MG said...

yeah, crested butte in july... you gotta' make that. we'll take lots of pictures on our trip in march -- we'll document it so well you'll think you were there.

i'll take stock of who we're gonna' have on the trip from lincoln this weekend and will report back.

so we know sda's in. debaser's out. he's having a kid right then. i know that's a lame excuse, but waddya gonna' do.

hopefully shithouse is in, and i was trying to talk chaybo into bringing a crew down from montana to rip it with us -- no beard required.

redstone and debaser, you gotta get pablo, melis and the rest of your posse onto the plan.

debaser said...

Out for Spring, in for Summer. Lame lame lame...

MG said...

yeah, having a kid is a legit excuse. you can't miss that!
